    What do you guys use to lock the hood on fj's? I'd like to have the peice of mind that someone can't just open the two latches, and take whatever they like. Thanks

    Wonder if you could get your hands on the latch they installed on the 1984 BJ42. Slick looking, I photos on my web site of the latch.

    i run a small chain and padlock through the corner brace of the hood and the hood prop hole in the apron. bit redneck, but it works

    If it's too small and visible, they'll just freeze it with a spraycan and snap it off. Should be some kind of positive lock, like two eyebolts that line up and a case-hardened large padlock.

    I did this lock setup a few years ago and love it. Wanted to post up the part # of the lock shown because it has been a pain in the ass to find. I stumbled on it at NAPA today so here goes...

    NAPA part #770-3794

    Master Lock #605DAT

    [​IMG]


    Comes with 2 keys and works like a charm.

    Thanks to Shane (fj40_73) for finding this elusive thread for me.
